ATLANTA PUB

Reviewed By Mary L - Tipton, United States

We are working out of state but always come home spring and fall. And a trip to The Still--now Atlanta Pub is planned. We will have from 9 to 17 in our group. They are very accommodating to us. We may order 3 to 5 pizzas, which they make, and serve us drinks always with a smile. A great neighborhood place to congregate .
In town now so will probably hit there tomorrow night. Yum! Yum! Good fellowship, eats and drinks.

Mounds State Park

Mounds State Park, located off I-69 east of Anderson, features 10 unique earthworks built by prehistoric Indians known as the Adena-Hopewell people. The largest earthwork, the Great Mound, is believed to have been constructed around 160 B.C. Archaeological surveys indicate the mounds were used as gathering places for religious ceremonies, from where astronomical alignments could be viewed. Be sure to visit our Nature Center, which includes a wildlife viewing room, animal displays, interactive games and more. Hours are 9 am to 4 pm daily. Naturalist-led hikes and interpretive programs are offered every weekend throughout the year.

We came here for a weekend in august to camp and to swim. We were so disappointed that the pool closed for the summer on august 1st. Not even open on the weekend. Gate attendant was rude and could not answer any of our questions.

Canoe Country

Reviewed By fishhead101 - Muncie, Indiana

I took my family out for a nice canoe paddle down White River(ages 40-10) At Canoe Country you pay for the hours on the river with the canoe. They drop you off upstream with your canoe and allow you and your family to paddle back to the facility where your car is parked. Depending on how long you wanted your trip to be, is how far away they dropped you off to paddle back. they ranged from2, 5, 7 10+ mile trips -price ranging from $30-$36. I think some trips will allow you to go past the facility and they will pick you up downstream at the correct location for the longer trips. We had a blast !! Great time to float along the river and challenge a few 8" deep rapids..haha The facility was clean and very professional. the workers answered any questions we had and gave us some pointers on some areas to watch out for. We attempted to go to another canoe rental place nearby, but they had a very small amount of rentals and nothing for us. Canoe Country was loaded up when we left at 1PM, but they still had 3 trailers full of canoes standing by and there were 30+ cars in parking lot. A Very Satisfied Customer.!!

World's Largest Ball of Paint

Reviewed By Porthos7 - West Chester, Ohio

Be a part of a Guinness Book of World Records! People from all over the world have flocked to this oddity! The World's Largest Ball of Paint hangs from an industrial-size hook - which all started as a baseball that the owner encouraged his son to put a layer of paint on - now over 5000lbs! You will be given your "number" (I was #25,160 & used Orange paint) and a paint roller (with a bunch of colors of paint available at the time - they get the rejects from the local paint store - so it makes it even more interesting..) - then you get to painting the ball! There is a mirror on the floor to even get the underneath! This is a cool little roadside stop - call in advance, and they'll be waiting! Very accommodating hosts - and btw - leave a tip... they do this out of their own pockets and they don't charge anything! Go have fun!

Tabby Tree Weaver - Day Classes

Reviewed By ExplorerScott - Indianapolis, Indiana

In passing through Arcadia, IN last week, I came across a quaint little shop that intrigued me with what it had in its windows. I think it was the orange shirt that caught my eye, just something about it and the color made me stop and want to see more. I walked up to the window and realized it was a weaving shop with all kinds of yarn in it, and right in the middle of the studio were looms that I assumed you made things on! With my mechanical background the looms really intrigued me, so I went in and immediately became enveloped in textures and colors. I'm an artistic person as well and this beautiful little shop just pulled me in and I was hooked.
Linda is the owner of the shop and advised me that she taught classes on how to use the looms and various weaving techniques and patterns. I have got to try this out! I'm not sure yet why the whole idea of weaving appealed to me but I have to tell you I got excited about making something of my own creation! This was another way for me to be creative and make something and I think the next class for beginners I'm going to take. Get up to Arcadia and see this neat shop. Great for kids and I think more than just me will be busy, thanks to Linda. Apparently she has events or classes for kids sometimes too.

Good's Candy Shop

Reviewed By Jeffrey S - Logansport, Indiana

After reading other reviews we decided to visit this location. We were impressed by the neat and clean appearance. We didn't have room for ice cream this time, but did pick up some delicious chocolate treats at prices that are not unreasonable. They have a nice variety of candies, including some specialty items that you won't find just anywhere.
